Since the 2012 election, many have believed that Mitt Romney lost the election because many Republicans, turned off by Romney’s status as a “Republican in name only,” stayed home and didn’t vote. As the theory goes, the Republicans could have won the election if only they had nominated a candidate who was more conservative and who would have motivated the Republican base to turn out. Was there really a conservative boycott of Mitt Romney? The answer to the missing Republicans of 2012 can be found in exit polls and vote tallies.

 

The first thing to note is that Mitt Romney got more votes than John McCain did in 2008. The Federal Election Commission’s official tallies for 2008 show that McCain received 59,948,323 votes. The official 2012 results from the FEC show that Mitt Romney received 60,933,500 votes. Romney received almost a million votes more than McCain.

Fidel Castro claims John McCain conspired with Israel to create ISIS

castroI’m no fan of John McCain, the alleged Republican senator from Arizona, but this is just insane.

According to Fidel Castro, the former dictator of Cuba, McCain conspired with Mossad to create ISIS.

“Many people are astonished when they hear the statements made by some European spokesmen for NATO when they speak with the style and face of the Nazi SS,” Castro wrote in an op-ed for Cuban state media.  “Adolf Hitler’s greed-based empire went down in history with no more glory than the encouragement provided to NATO’s aggressive and bourgeois governments, which makes them the laughing stock of Europe and the world.”

James Foley originally kidnapped by ‘moderate’ Obama-funded Free Syrian Army

isis-behead-journalistAs it turns out, James Foley, the journalist recently beheaded by ISIS terrorists, was originally kidnapped by a group aligned with the so-called Free Syrian Army, the allegedly “moderate” group embraced by John McCain.

Keep in mind, this is the group the Obama regime gave weapons to, and the same group John “McRINO” McCain guaranteed were “moderates.”

Opinion: The truth about Republicans and amnesty – one writer’s view

Whenever the subject of immigration reform comes up, a charge that is certain to be bandied about is that Republicans are trying to foist amnesty on the country. Almost every Republican of note has been accused of supporting amnesty at some point in recent years. Are these charges true? What is the truth about the Republicans and amnesty?

First, what is amnesty? Merriam Webster defines “amnesty” as “a decision that a group of people will not be punished or that a group of prisoners will be allowed to go free” or “the act of an authority (as a government) by which pardon is granted to a large group of individuals.” Similarly, Merriam Webster defines “pardon” as the “act of officially saying that someone who was judged to be guilty of a crime will be allowed to go free and will not be punished.” Is this what prominent Republicans are advocating?

John McCain: Barack Obama ‘smarter than the rest of us’

mccain-obamaIt’s things like this that have earned John McCain, the alleged Republican senator from Arizona, the nickname “McRINO.”

In an interview with Time magazine, McCain said Obama made a good impression on GOP Senators at a dinner last year because in his view, the president was simply smarter than they were.

RINOs and the modern McCarthyism

US Fish and Wildlife

Everyone is familiar with Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis.).  In the 1950s, McCarthy made a cottage industry of searching out and finding hidden communists throughout the federal government.  In the post-WWII era, communism was a real threat.  McCarthy, however, was a charlatan.

McCarthy’s inquisition began on Feb. 9, 1950 with a speech to the Republican Women’s Club of Wheeling, W.V. What McCarthy said wasn’t recorded, but, according to “The Politics of Fear” by Robert Griffith, the senator waved a piece of paper in his hand and proclaimed, “I have here in my hand a list of 205 names that were made known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping policy in the State Department.”

Tea Partiers will determine the mid-terms…and the Republicans know it

 

“Play offense. Go after your opponent. Your opponent’s going after you, you go after your opponent. The best defense is a good offense.”

Words out of the mouth of RINO Senator John McCain…good words but they make one wonder which side he’s addressing this to…as if we didn’t know.

And so we have liberals to the left of us…RINOS NOT quite to the left but so NOT to the right of us…and caught in the middle is we Conservatives and TEA Partiers. And the prize all sides want is the Senate…the left wants to keep it, the RINOS will go whichever way the wind blows, and we in the middle know that to retake the Senate as long as we keep the House means Barack HUSSEIN Obama is basically rendered politically impotent from doing any more harm to our beloved America.

Dishonoring our military yet again

How far we have fallen when the only solution to Obama’s out of control spending is to put the burden upon the backs of those who risk their lives every day to keep us safe and free at home.

The last time Congress adopted a budget was in 2009, but last week in step one, the Republican controlled House passed the Ryan/Murray Bi-Partisan Budget Bill NOT because it was a good bill…in fact it barely puts a dent in the deficits predicted to lessen in the short term but grow much larger in the long term…but because they feared yet another government shutdown and its negative ramifications as we head into the 2014 mid-term election year. And it’s so sad that everything the House now does is done out of fear instead of doing what’s right, and it’s usually ‘We the People’ who end up on the losing end when all is said and done.

Political bullies…existing at all levels of government

cruz bullyBullying…the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively impose domination over others. Bullying…what better word is there to describe the growing number of RINOs in the House.

And while lately the issue and consequences of bullying in general has been all over the news…as in bullies in our schools, bullies on the playground, bullies in sports…sadly, the bullies within the ranks of the Republican party…certain long-term way past time to leave RINO bullies… seem to be dominating the headlines. These political bullies…as in the likes of John McCain and Lindsey Graham to name but two…held Republican lawmakers in both chambers hostage with their made-up doomsday scenarios about defaulting as they sold their party…and ‘We the People’…out to the Obama political machine.
